The balancing act of sustainable waste management

The need for the sustainable management of waste is becoming more important with the opportunity to conserve materials, landfills competing for valuable land, and the health, environmental and aesthetic impacts of ineffective disposal methods. Waste managers are increasingly challenged to create and maintain sustainable systems that are financially and economically affordable, acceptable by society, environmentally effective and practically implementable.

For a short review on the costs and benefits of waste management options and many other very valuable contributions to sustainable waste management, see this newly released Waste Revolution Handbook.

Hello Martin and Gerhard,

My name is Lynn and I am contacting you on behalf of Ford Focus. I have been reading your blog, and I was wondering if it would be alright if I emailed you about a particular environmental and hunger related opportunity? What you are doing with sustainable development and hunger issues in Africa match every well with our current mission to support environmental, hunger and education related charities.

I'd like to gauge your interest in participating in a contest that would donate $10,000 to your favorite charity.

It would be great to chat. Would love to hear from you at lkoves@room214.com

Martin and Gerhard,

Seeing that you’re a green advocate I wanted to reach out and see if you were interested in an article that I recently have written. It's on the Olympics and the steps they're taking to go green and decrease the environmental impact that it has. While sports is something far from the topic of your blog, I think that you will find it interesting and informative, and not overwhelming on the sports content, besides a few facts on the last Olympics, it is primarily about the Olympics going Green.

I'm looking to spread awareness of the fact that even though the Olympic Games are fantastic and unifying, they are it's quite a carbon-rich event and are not that environmentally sound. I think you and your readers of (http://sustoptions.blogspot.com/) will find it a unique topic and a fun read.

Also if you're not interested in posting my article, I would be interested in hearing about any advertising opportunities you may have at the current time. I look forward to hearing back from you!
